I have worked hard to perfect a recipe that I love and this is my 'perfect' bran muffin recipe:
Oat Bran Muffins
1 c. milk
1 1/2 c. oat bran
1/3 c. olive oil
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. agave nectar
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. all-purpose flour (unbleached)
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a small mixing bowl combine milk and oat bran. Set aside to soak.
Meanwhile, in another small mixing bowl, combine oil, egg, vanilla, brown sugar, and agave nectar. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl sift together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in wet ingredients and stir to combine. Add in oat bran mixture stirring to incorporate well.
Line a 12 whole muffin tin with liners and fill each evenly - approximately 3/4 full.
Bake for 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted come out clean.
